2007 X45 with Inmar 8.1L

1. Custom surf deck.

2. FH 1100 piggy backed on port stock tank.

3. Expansion notch for port locker.

4. Custom 10 foot FH 1000 with dedicated ballast pump.

5. Battery locker. Batteries have been moved to starboard side under helm. I have added some pop bags to port side to offset the weight shift caused by moving the batteries.

6. Cooler removed to allow for custom bag.

7. Custom bag has a dedicated vent. The bag runs to front of board locker.

8. Speed using PP at 11.5 calibrated with GPS. Trim all the way up. KGB full. People weight on surf side.

Mike and Angie have their X45 dialed. My wife and I ride behind it all the time now and they come on our X25.

Look at this stud from earlier this week:

Very jealous sir! Your wave is simply awesome! The fact that your ballast is hidden is awesomer!

How long are your sessions, and how many gallons of fuel are you guys using roughly?

Just curious. I've considered getting a 45 and I know they're gas hogs......

Brian the 8.1L goes through 8gal per hour weighted. Our 5.7L goes through 5gal per hour weighted. Both of us will have the 5 blade OJ's on for next week and that should help a lot.

Live in Ahwatukee and keep the boat in Parker in a closed storage unit. Spend all our time out at Parker and Havasu out on the river. Pleasant is always so windy and rough. Can't really even get away from it because there aren't any coves.

AZ. We are on the lake by 7 am during the summer. Light winds and no boats. We also spend most of October at Lake Havasu.

Why Havasu in October? Water starts getting cold too.

When do you pull off the water? Or do you just head to the humbug bay to chill?

The water is never cold for Mike and Angie. They have dry suits for the winter :)

How'd those 5 blades work out for you guys? What pitch are you running? I'm currently in the market for a second prop on my 45 and i'm weighing out my options. I'm currently on a 4 blade 14.75 X 15.5 and thinking about the 5 blade same pitch and diameter.
